I don’t care about soccer. Never have. I admit, I’m a typical American that way. But Rand was a HUGE soccer fan. He volunteered his Saturday mornings for ten years being a ref for a local kid’s league and played on two local teams as well.
Rand was also born in Holland and while he came here as a kid, he was a resident alien; he had never given up his Netherlands citizenship.
I just saw that the finals for the World Cup are down to Spain and….Netherlands.
Just that almost made me tear up. The final game is apparently on the 11th – two days shy of four months since his passing. I may just have to decide to like soccer – at least for one game.
